Computer Coding and the Raspberry Pi
With the change to the Computing Curriculum, the Raspberry Pi is an ideal
way of developing your pupils’ programming at Key Stages 2 and 3.
Using Scratch, pupils can develop programs to control external devices,
such as motors, buzzers and LEDs.
As they progress, pupils can use inputs (such as sensors and switches),
along with repeat loops and variables, to create more complex systems.
To help teachers to introduce such concepts, Wishtrac have developed
a Teaching and Learning disk, as well as providing all the required
resources.
As shown opposite, this contains 6 progressive units of work using
Scratch, detailed lesson plans and worksheets, PowerPoint presentations
and over 60 pages of helpsheets that can be used to help with new
concepts. An extensive range of helpsheets is also included - these
helpsheets can also be found at www.wishtrac.com/pihelpsheets.
The six units of work (outlined below) are related to real-life scenarios, and
will get your pupils enthused and motivated about learning to code.
The kits on page 15 show the 4 main packs you could buy to kick-start
your Computer Coding in Scratch. All the kits contain the Teaching and
Learning Resource, and all the electrical components and resources
needed to teach all six units of work.
Enough spare peripherals are included to teach each
unit a number of times. Cost-effective replacement
parts, and a full range of peripherals for your
Raspberry Pi can be found at www.wishtrac.com/p

 

 

Motivate and Enthuse your pupils as, using Scratch, they develop programs to control external devices,such as motors, buzzers and LEDs.

Pupils can design and build models of real-life systems such as Traffic Lights, Burglar Alarms and Buzz Wire Games!
